Re: Angels and Apistos

Hello, A. Muir, and Victoria, and Bob

I would like to ask questions and make a couple of comments.  One is how many
gallons does that tank hold which is 36"x12"x18"  by my calculations it is 
4 and 1/2 cu.ft.  But how many gallons?  Comment:  How do the angels cope
with the shallowness of the tank.  I gather it is only 12" high!?  When I
think of 
a 20 gal. tank I picture a 20 long or 20 tall.  The dimensions make a great 
deal of difference for these tanks.  The standard 20 long is (I believe) 12" 
in height and 12" in depth and is either 30" or 36" long.  While a 20 gal.
is (again I believe) 24" x 18" x 12" which is tall but the bottom area
be adequate for for a group of Apistos & Angels.   The 20 long gives a nice 
comfortable bottom area for a group of dwarfs but it might crowd things and
be somewhat shallow to comfortably house the Angels.  I agree in any case a
deal of cover should be available for the Apistos.  Now if the tank bottom 
area is 36" x 18", I feel that would be spacious accomodations for the
Apistos and possibly the angels with adequate cover, but if the Angels are
wouldn't a height of only 12" be just a little shallow for them?
